For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Misprision of a Felony was sentenced on August 11, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Na’pe Young, age 34, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, $1,135.80 in restitution to the Rosebud Elderly Affairs Program, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Young was indicted for First Degree Burglary, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury by a federal grand jury on March 11, 2014.  He pled guilty to a Superseding Information charging him with Misprision of a Felony on May 29, 2014.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 2, 2013, when two men walked to the home of the victim.  After a verbal altercation started, one of the men struck the victim on the head and in the face with his fists.  Young was present during the assault.  After the assault was over,  Young concealed it from tribal and federal law enforcement officers and did not report the assault to a judge or other person in civil authority under the United States.
This case was investigated by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. Maher prosecuted the case.
Young was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
